Pitt received tremendous praise for his performance in the highly successful 1995 crime drama Seven, which grossed $327 million worldwide. Pitt received a Golden Globe award as well as an Academy Award nomination for his next film, 12 Monkeys.

In 1991 Brad earned just $6,000 for his bit part in Thelma & Louise. Just two years later he earned $500,000 for Kalifornia. That’s the same as just under $1 million after adjusting for inflation. Two years after Kalifornia, he earned a cool $4 million for Se7en. The following year he earned his first $10 million paychecks for Sleepers. He earned another $10 million for Seven Years in Tibet.

 Career

Pitt’s earliest credited roles were in television, starting on the daytime soap opera Another World (1964) before appearing in the recurring role of Randy on the legendary prime time soap opera Dallas (1978). Following a string of guest appearances on various television series through the 1980s, Pitt gained widespread attention with a small part in Thelma & Louise (1991), in which he played a sexy criminal who romanced and conned Geena Davis. This led to starring roles in badly received films such as Johnny Suede (1991) and Cool World (1992).

But Pitt’s career hit an upswing with his casting in A River Runs Through It (1992), which cemented his status as a multi-layered actor as opposed to just a pretty face. Pitt’s subsequent projects were as quirky and varied in tone as his performances, ranging from his unforgettably comic cameo as stoner roommate Floyd in True Romance (1993) to romantic roles in such visually lavish films as Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles (1994) and Legends of the Fall (1994), to an emotionally tortured detective in the horror-thriller Se7en (1995). His portrayal of frenetic oddball Jeffrey Goines in 12 Monkeys (1995) won him a Globe for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.

  • In 2005, Pitt starred opposite Angelina Jole in the blockbuster action flick Mr. And Mrs. Smith. Showcasing a married pair who are both secretly working as spies, the movie earned more than $478 million worldwide, with the two actors eventually becoming a real-life couple.
  • Pitt’s next film, the critically acclaimed Babel (2006), earned the actor another Golden Globe nomination. The actor moved on to less serious fare in the reprisal of his role as Rusty Ryan in Ocean’s Thirteen (2007). In 2008, Pitt teamed up with Joel and Ethan Coen to star in the FBI comedic thriller Burn After Reading. The film earned two Golden Globe nominations and grossed more than $60 million at the box office.
  • Pitt took on a more fantastic lead role in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, a film based on a short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. In this Fincher-directed movie, Pitt plays the title character, who is born as a 70-year-old man and ages in reverse. Pitt received another Oscar nod for the film, which won three Academy Awards.
  • In 2009, Pitt starred in Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and, in 2011, starred with Sen pen and Jessica Chastain in Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life, which won the Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival. He was also the lead player in Moneyball, a baseball dramedy that follows the travails of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane and his quest to reshape his team. The film earned six Oscar nominations, including nods for Pitt as both lead actor and producer in the best picture category.

Oscar

In 2013, Pitt won acclaim for his performance as Gerry Lane in the zombie-apocalyptic thriller World War Z (2013), directed by Marc Forster, and later that year appeared as a supporting character in The Counselor. He also received raves for his work on 12 Years a Slave. The film, directed by Steve McQueen, tells the true story of free African-American musician Solomon Northup (played by Chiwetel Ejiofor) who is kidnapped and sold into slavery. Pitt plays a Canadian carpenter who greatly aids Northup, with a cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Lupita Nyong’o, Michael Fassbender and Quvenzhané Wallis.

For his work as a producer on the film, Pitt earned his fifth Academy Award nomination, receiving his second nod in the best picture category. He won the award in 2014-marking his first Oscar win-sharing it with McQueen, Dede Gardner, Jeremy Kleiner, and Anthony Katagas.

That year also saw Pitt starring as an army sergeant in the WWII action drama Fury. Then in 2015, Pitt co-starred with wife Jolie in the art house outing By the Sea, which she wrote and directed. He also appeared in The Big Short, a film that focuses on the housing market bubble that fueled the 2008 financial collapse and a group of men who’d predicted the turmoil to come. Based on the nonfiction bestseller by Michael Lewis, the project earned a slew of award nominations. Pitt followed by starring in the WWII romantic thriller Allied (2016), with Marion Cotillard, and the satirical War Machine (2017), as a character based on former U.S. General Stanley McChrystal. In 2019, he teamed with Leonardo DiCaprio in Tarantino’s Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, leading to his second Golden Globe and first Oscar win for the best supporting actor, and also headlined the sci-fi adventure Ad Astra.
